As a Minor League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, the Asheville Tourists look to improve on last season's 40-30 record with a roster poised for more orb clobbering, field prancing, and bag stomping. Kick up dusty cleats in an up-close box seat at McCormick Field and watch the Tourists turn the Lexington Legends into forgotten folk tales or outclass the crustaceous humanoids of the Lakewood BlueClaws. The first 1,000 fans to enter the field on April 16 and 17 are bequeathed with a free magnetic season schedule, with the latter game treating kids to a pregame autograph session and a postgame base run. April 20 is an education day, featuring a special start time of 11:05 a.m. that allows students to attend the game on their lunch break from school.
